Library as a Service®

Modern information services
for law and business

Knowledge is power in law and business

But harnessing that power is complicated. Technology advances, data volume explodes, and you scramble to keep pace. When you need relief, turn to experts on finding, curating and organizing information—
the librarians, researchers and other professionals at LibSource.

Research on-demand by people you would hire yourself (if only you could add support staff)

Pay for what you need and gain full utilization, affordable options and quality outcomes. We fill gaps and optimize resources with services on-demand for research, special projects, operational support or library / information center outsourcing.
